About us

Founded in 2011, The Hudson Café was born in the heart of Detroit just before the city’s much-publicized revival began. Located on Woodward Avenue between Grand River and State St, our name is a nod to the iconic Hudson’s department store, which was located directly across the street from us on Woodward Avenue, and Detroit’s heyday as a bustling, cosmopolitan city. We have been blessed ever since to watch the city progress and grow around us. 

 Our mission is simple: to celebrate the diverse, hustling, resilient city of Detroit and its people by consistently providing amazing food and a stellar experience. Our expansive menu has something for everyone: whether it’s our take on the famous Maurice salad that your grandparents remember from Hudson’s, a heaping stack of Cinnabun pancakes for the dessert-for-breakfast person in your life, a Voodoo benedict for those who love an adventurous take on an old classic, or Mickey Mouse pancakes for the little ones, we’ve got you covered.
